The influence of Propofol on regional cerebral function and CBF were studied using 24 male Spragus-Dawley rat by quantitative autoradiographic technique for glucose ( (14C)deoxyglucose) and (14C) Iodoantipyrine. Rats had both femoral artery and vein cannulated and were placed on lead weight. Propofol was infused intravenously at a rate of 0.35 mg/kg/min. for induction and 0.3 mg/kg/min for maintenance untill loss of corneal reflex with stable vital signs. Local cerebral glucose utilization and CBF were checked from conscious control rats and propofol anesthetized rats. The results were as follows; 1) There was no physiologically significant effect of propofol on body temperature, MAP, PaCO, and pH. 2) Regional cerebral glucose utilization was markedly decreased in many, but not all, cerebral structures. 3) The order of decreased glucose utilization was Diencephalone>Telencephalone>Mesence-phalone>Mylencephalone. which means the forebrain was more affected than hindbrain. 4) The most affected area of glucose utilization were cerebral association area, visual system and sensory motor cortex, but the auditory system was not so much affected. 5) During combined use of N,O and propofol, there was no significant stimulation effect of N,O to propofol in glucose utilization. 6) Regional CBF were markedly decreased in many brain regions which means low local cerebral glucose utilization with low CBF. 7) Propofol has specific effect of lowering cerebral metabolic rate, CBF, and intracranial pressure but no signigicant effect on cardiovascular system, pulmonary system, or temperature.
